entertaining quota quickie
15 October 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

an inventor offers his invention to the British army on condition that the government forge an alliance with a country who want to see the end of our empire.Driving away from the demonstration of the equipment the inventor has a near fatal crash,but his life is saved by a surgeon.However everyone agrees that it would be better if the inventor had died.The inventor is murdered and the surgeon is suspected.However there are other suspects who might be guilty.Whilst the mystery is well handled,nevertheless there are a few unexplained events.Why was the surgeon in the inventors room and why was he creeping about in the medical cabinet with a torch.There is some comedy introduced with reporters vying for the story and a touch of romance with a very young Patricia Roc.An entertaining 67 minutes.
